Dear Ms. McMurray:

This is in response to your letter dated June 3, 1976, which discusses information on radial arm saw guards.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has reviewed the information provided by your office. The material referenced refers to OSHA Field Information Memorandum #75-49A dated November 3, 1975, which addresses problem areas in saw mill operations specific to operations covered in 29 CFR 1910.265. These specific saws are 6-12 feet in size and are not classified as radial table saw operations.

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me. Thank you for your interest in Occupational Safety and Health.

Sincerely,



John K. Barto, Chief
Division of Occupational Safety Programming
